TESTIMONIAL

From the Students

‘‘

I chose CCU because Christian education is very important to me. I went to a Lutheran grade school, high school, and college. My children go to a Lutheran grade school. My faith is fundamental in my life and I want to be able to openly express and incorporate my faith into my education and how to relate it in a practical way to my professional life.
